2007 Dom. d'Andezon Cotes du Rhone Rouge Red Blend 750ml
90% Syrah (40-year old vines) and 10% Grenache (60-year old vines).
ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: A blend of 90% Syrah (40-year old vines) and 10% Grenache (60-year old vines), the tank-fermented and aged 2007 Cotes du Rhone exhibits sweet blackberry and cassis fruit interwoven with notions of spring flowers, licorice, and road tar. It possesses a lovely texture, crisp acids (a characteristic of this vintage), medium to full body, and a long, smooth finish. Drink it over the next 2-3 years. One of the great values Eric Solomon has long sourced from a well-known cooperative south of Chateauneuf du Pape is Domaine d'Andezon's Cotes du Rhone, and more recently, their 100% old vine Grenache cuvee called La Granacha Signargues.
